Pulaski County Health officials say they will no longer be able to post total testing numbers as MO DHSS has changed its data-sharing practices that did allow them to obtain more accurate testing totals. The Health center will continue to post total positive cases, known hospitalizations, and COVID related deaths. However, due to the large community spread and the number of outbreak locations, they will no longer be posting a list of outbreak locations. While they do investigate and post public places that may have been a higher risk of public exposure, it is best to assume that every location you visit is a location of potential exposure and take the appropriate precautions to protect yourselves, your families, and our communities. There will be an additional announcement coming later this week on some changes related to our COVID-19 response. Due to high call volume, it may be difficult to get through. To help with this you may also call one of the other lines: 573-736-2218, 573-736-2219, or 800-781-2219. After hours, please call 573-736-2219. If no answer after hours, please leave a message and you’ll get a returned call within 24 hours or sooner. While there is no current mask mandate, these practices will help protect you and our community. WEAR your mask while in public places. WATCH your distance. WASH your hands. Please do not call health departments in other counties. They are not able to help with cases in our county. . You may also email [email protected] with COVID questions.
